My computer's configuration is:

Intel Core i5-2500 3.30GHz
RAM 8 GB
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 1GB
HDD 1GB 7200 
Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio
Monitor with 1920x1200 resolution

Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit)

I tried to view m2ts file from iso or from hdd (it does not matter). Any way my GOM player playes video with "jerky". Could someone recommend any software or just any solution how to start playing video without problem on this hardware.

Is this a new installation without any unecessary software? –  music2myear Aug 26 '11 at 18:17

Your current setup should be more than fast enough. The first thing I would try is installing VLC from http://www.videolan.org. VLC includes its own codecs and it's quite fast.

The second thing I would try if that does not work is to convert the m2ts file to an easier-to-play format using either ffmpeg or mencoder. My own main PC is much slower than yours, so I convert all HD video files to AVI at a lower resolution before playing.

+1 for VLC. I use both VLC and K-Lite Codec Pack (you can also try CCCP), but VLC will play anything the other two can't. Also, VLC (as CarlF mentioned) uses it's own self-contained codecs, so it won't impact any of the pre-installed DirectShow codecs on the machine (it's about as close to a "portable" media player codec pack as you can get). –  Breakthrough Aug 26 '11 at 18:54
